Make a holiday rental home or accommodation in County Clare, Ireland your home away from home

County Clare is a simply amazing place to be. The rugged Atlantic Coastline, marked by the stunning Cliffs of Moher which plummet 700m into the ocean, is a walker’s paradise, and cannot fail to inspire, however many times you make the journey. County Clare, Ireland, is a wonderful destination for those who want to get into the great outdoors, explore the wonderfully friendly little rural villages and fine traditional cultures of rural Ireland. As you may be able to tell, a County Clare cottage is my personal idea of heaven!

Things to do in County Clare, Ireland

The Clare countryside is some of the most remarkable and varied scenery you can find in Ireland. Walking is an absolute delight, and there are amazing sights to be seen in every direction of the compass. The stunning coastline withholds many hidden gems, from great swimming spots to the local dolphin which lives off the coast of Liscannor. Inland, the open expanses of green fields separated by iconic stone walls quickly change to limestone karsts, and the alien scenery of the Burren, a rocky landscape of caves, rare alpine fauna and underground streams. Many walks will take you by unexpected archaeological sites dating as far back as 5,000 years. Almost the finest part of walking from a County Clare cottage is the satisfaction of warming up in front of an open fire in one of Clare’s pubs with a pint, talking to the ever hospitable locals.

golf is a very important game in County Clare, Ireland. There are many magnificent championship courses around, including the delightful links course in Lahinch. There are many courses available to play from a County Clare holiday rental, as well as plenty of 9 hole courses and pitch and putt games to enjoy from County Clare accommodation.

Sailing, windsurfing and surfing also thrive in County Clare. Accommodation on the coastline is wonderful for allowing you to pick and choose when to head to the beach, board in hand and attempt to conquer the Atlantic swells which crash onto the sand. Many of the beaches are beautifully flat, meaning that not only can you swim and paddle a long way out (taking care of currents signalled by a system of flags on the beach), but the beaches themselves are host to games of football and hurling throughout the year.

If you are lucky enough to be staying in a County Clare cottage during the Gaelic Games season, it is well worth going to see a game. Although Gaelic football and hurling may be completely alien to English visitors, they provide an excellent spectacle and you will get caught up with the crowds.

Equestrian sports are hugely popular in County Clare too, and if you are hoping to take a riding holiday from County Clare accommodation, you will be spoilt for choice.

With a very temperate climate, County Clare has one of the longest growing seasons in Ireland. Average monthly temperatures range from 6˚C in January to 15˚C in July. Rain is not uncommon, so it is a good idea to pack a jacket when you pack for your accommodation in County Clare.

If I was impressed with the photos on the web site that was nothing compared to how we felt when we first saw the coach house. It was spacious, exceptionally clean, well stocked/equipped and incredibly warm. Annie and Jim were very friendly, they welcomed us when we arrived and very helpful. The coach house sits in a remote location which suited us. There is a short walk to the edge of the Loch and about half an hour walk to the nearest pub that provided food. A trip in the summer would be good as we could take advantage of some of the boat trips etc

We would definitely recommend it. The cottage is located in a quiet location with fine views at the rear. The description of the cottage is spot on and the helpful tips from the owner on where to go and what to see were very useful. Kilkee and Kilrush are close by with a large supermarket and smaller shops easily accessible in both towns. We found a Monday night in October a bit tricky to find somewhere nice to eat but Kellys Seafood and Steak restaurant in Kilrush was a great find. We also had fish and chips from the chippy (not on the same night) in the main square in Kilrush. Good quality but the £/€ exchange rate helped us use a few more Euros than we had thought. All in all a great break. Thank you.

It was extremely clean and well maintained both inside and out and well located to meet our holiday needs. The house is a good base for trips to Kilkee, Loop head and the cliffs of Moher and plenty of beaches for surfing and other water sports. Whilst this was not our forte it is nice to go and watch the activities taking place in all weathers and even when the day light was fast fading away. The owner was very reactive when we reported a problem with the cloths dryer and when it could not be repaired he immediately had it replaced If we ever decide to go back to that part of Ireland for our holidays we would not hesitate to go back to this house.
